What is Chunmee green tea?

Chun mee is produced in China and one of the most popular green teas in western countries.


What does Chunmee tea taste like?

Chunmee is a pan-fired tea. Pan-fired teas have a less vegetal and nuttier flavor, that can be light or more intense, depending on how the teas was made. For example. lung ching or Dragon well is also nutty, but with no smokiness and very light compared to Chunmee.


In strength and color, Chunmee is quite similar to Gunpowder, but with more smokiness. Chunmee green tea has a bit more astringency than other green teas, and is suitable for drinking with sugar, honey or even milk. Because of its strong flavor, Chunmei is great for flavoring and scenting. It’s often used in some African countries for making mint tea, similar to Moroccan mint tea made with Gunpowder tea leaves. This tea makes for a great daily green tea.
